New Non-contact Motion Sensor SPEETEC from SICK

SICK SPEETEC Non-contact motion sensor

Introducing the SPEETEC, the new non-contact motion sensor from SICK. SPEETEC accurately determines the length, position and speed of objects and surfaces without any measuring elements or scales. It reliably measures continuous roll materials or single items such as paper, plastic, metal, wood or textiles. It proves to be particularly advantageous with sensitive or soft materials, which would normally be damaged by traditional tactile sensors. SPEETEC is "virtually wear and maintenance-free," according to SICK, providing an excellent return on your investment.
